Race-Car-Exhibit-2014-PosterBRIGHTON, Ont. – Some of Brighton Speedway’s finest racecars will be on display this weekend at Frontenac Mall’s 13th annual Race Car Exhibit.

The show, which is presented by Stewart’s Racing, will run from Thursday March 27 to Saturday March 29. It marks the unofficial kick off to the 2014 short-track racing season in Eastern Ontario. It will run during regular mall hours.

Brighton Speedway will have five cars at the show to represent the 1/3-mile clay oval. Caley Weese’s No. 77 and Adam Turner’s No.92 will showcase the Vanderlaan Building Supplies Pro Late Model division.

Both cars features a new paint scheme for the upcoming campaign.

“I am excited the car is close to race ready because that means race season is almost here,” said Turner. “I always look forward to the show because I get to see people that I haven’t seen all winter, our racing family.”

“It’s always a bit of thrill to launch the finished product at the beginning of the season and hope everyone likes it,” said Weese. “This year we’ve gone with a completely different look. I think the fans will be surprised.”

Leslie Mowat’s No. 2 will display the Brighton Automotive Pro Stock division, and Shelby Mill’s No. 78 will show off the Bill’s Johns Comp 4 class.

Charlie Sandercock’s No. 57 Sanderson Automotive Southern Ontario Sprint car will also be on display.

Brockville Speedway will also have some of its best cars on display as well.
